The beloved kid’s show Sesame Street announced that Julia, their first character with autism, will be making her TV debut on April 10th. Julia already has her own print and digital storybook series called “Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children”, where she met Elmo and his friends. This past Sunday, a few Sesame Street characters appeared on CBS’ “60 Minutes” to talk about Julia, which garnered very positive responses from the public. By introducing her on the show, producers hope to present autism to a new generation, help promote understanding that all kids are amazing, and that all kids can be friends. #SeeAmazing
